Mrs Belford (18**-18**) was an amateur actress in Cape Town.

She was apparently an occasional player for the Garrison Amateur Company (Garrison Players).

In 1824 for example she is praised for her performances in their presentation of Life, A Comedy (Reynolds) and The Irish Tutor, or New Lights (Glengall), performed in the African Theatre on 4 September, and repeated 22 September.
